Abstract: The MODIS Global Geolocation Angle files (MYDMGGAD) contain
information on solar illumination and instrument viewing geometry
angles. These data can be used to model the geometric relationship and
distance between the area of the Earth's surface imaged, the sun, and
the sensor. This is often required to perform atmospheric ... View entire text
